A Chilled Coca Cola


A heralded body of liquor
An apical concoction in carbonated water
A therapeutic miracle to what rests
Sweat-dampened and sun-tanned

A bottle with sultry lips
And voluptuous hips
Which is perpetuated in fables
And channeled through cables

Perennial hybrid
Of coca leaves and cola nuts
A fusion which quenches the thirst
And appeases the tongue

Devotee to ice
In a heavenly marriage of fire
As dewdrops of fizzy treacle
Colonize pastures of taste

Spawned from a concocted tonic
A pharmacist’s elixir
Yet to the common man's lips
She rests the nectar of bliss

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
